tiger20: Would be pleasing if they announce one way o the other whether NW stays with Edin IT because the share price running at a discount to NAV and investors wondering what to do. The markets moved up since the announcement last week but Edin stuck in a rut!
davidbh: arja, 'Cos it's in demand and market makers drive up the price on offer. If no-one buys (or rather, if demand seriously drops) then mm's will lower price andyou and I will plunge in - unless better offers around both at this permium and any lower share price.
northernlass: Edinburgh Investment Trust, A Good Performer THE REAL DIVIDEND HEROES In the UK Growth & Income sector a good performer is Edinburgh Investment Trust run by Neil Woodford, arguably the UK's best investment manager. He runs his funds in a cautious way and they tend not to be the top yielders in their sectors, but over time make strong returns. Edinburgh's dividend rises have beaten inflation in five out of the past 10 years and it currently yields a juicy 4.36 per cent. More importantly, in terms of share price performance it is among the top five trusts in its sector over one, three and five years, a record that recently helped it win the Best UK Equity Growth Fund awardat Investors Chronicle's fund awards. The downside to this trust is that it trades at a premium to NAV of more than 5 per cent. Read the article in full here: P.S. Here's a couple of links about SCLP, one of the hottest stocks at the moment:
gregmorg: BobP, Sorry only just seen your post.I am not a great authority on IT'S but "Think" I understand the essential rules. You refer to drip feeding and yes obviously drip feeding is always a good and cautious way to play most stocks and IT's are no exception. EDIN should have built up a reasonable head of internal steam for better dividend growth and hopefully starting to match its stated objectives(which it has not done in recent time. In the main with its stocks it seems to played the economic back ground rather well. I too am a fan of Neil Woodford although in a loose way as I worry that fund managers get blinded by their own publicity. Invesco certainly has a good publicity machine but facts speak for themselves. Much of the EDIN share price gain relative to the indices has come from the complete closing of its discount to asset value. Indeed, over the last year to eighteen months EDIN has gone from quite a big discount to assets to a premium (taking debt at fair value which in my book is the only way to measure. Technically you should not buy an IT when it's share price is at a premium to assets as you could (in a perfect world)buy the underlying stocks more cheapily directly in the market. Why then are they standing at a premium? Well the publicity machine has a bit to do with it but more importantly it is the lack of safe income streams elewhere.Bank saving accounts yield next to nothing so where does a reasonably cautious investor get income. IT's are one such avenue and being closed ended are less subject to certain market pressures . It wasn't long ago that EDIN was yielding 5.5-6.5%. Where else could you get that yield. More investors become aware and the yield on this and similar IT's come down. Witness City of London IT, Perpetual Income and Growth and many others.
gregmorg: Performance - Total Return 3 Months 1 Year Share Price 6.6% 20.1% Net Asset Value 5.9% 13.5% FTSE All-Share Index 5.5% 30.1% Source: Fundamental Data To kiwi2007 It's simple. The only true measure is the NAV and dividend flow(on their own and combined) Share price is heavily sentiment and subjective. The three month nav period is too short a period to evaluate but the year's performance vs the All share speaks for itself ie it is disappointing. Given the recent PR placed in the media(and specialist media ie Investment Trusts)I expected better or an indication of better. Indeed, given N.Woodford's specific comments on dividends I could have expected a small uplift,given these figures,if just to underline his stated extreme confidence in the outperformance over the medium term. It makes me wonder now whether it was not agressive PR but damage limitation. Yes I have a lot of this stock and held them for some years so these things are very important. Fortunately, I do not hold any Dunedin although as well as EDIN I also hold PIG from the same stable(pretty poor performance also) as well as five others. Oddly enough the Fidelity IT has done rather well over the last year! Best not to think about that too much.
kiwi2007: Latest monthly report out. 61.6% of the IT is focused on these 10 companies :- AstraZeneca GlaxoSmithKline Vodafone Imperial Tobacco - Ord & 9% Feb 2022 British American Tobacco BG BT Tesco National Grid Reynolds American - US common stock Portfolio review The cyclical rally continued in July, led by the likes of car related sectors, banks and miners. The investment trust's lack of exposure to these sectors had an adverse impact on returns relative to the UK market. The investment trust was also impacted by disappointing returns from the utility sector, as the draft pricing proposals from regulator OFWAT were less favourable than had been expected. The substantial overweight position in BT Group was positive, as the company's quarterly results, including further improvement in the Global Services division, were well received by the market and prompted a sharp rise in the share price. Strong results from major holdings British American Tobacco and Rolls-Royce also contributed positively to the investment trust's returns during the month. There were limited changes during the month, as we remain confi dent in the current positioning. The recent strategy of adding to preferred holdings at attractive levels was continued and this included further purchases in respect of BAE Systems, Altria and Reynolds American. Strategy and outlook We maintain our conviction that the combination of issues which created the UK's current severe recession will only be fully unwound over a number of years. We believe that this process is unavoidable and that the economy cannot return to a period of stable and consistent growth until it has been completed. Balance sheets at both corporate and consumer level need to be repaired and the UK's fi nancial system also needs to complete its rehabilitation. Accordingly, we believe that a prolonged period of little or no growth will characterise economic performance for the foreseeable future. Our caution on the outlook for the economy is in contrast to our optimism about the companies that dominate the fund, which demonstrate key fundamental qualities; sound balance sheets, consistent earnings and rising dividends. We believe that these companies, typically within the tobacco, utility, pharmaceutical and telecom sectors, are best equipped to deal with weak economic conditions and that they are cheap relative to history and to other sectors. The rally in cyclical sectors of the market has pushed valuations in some areas to stretched levels, which brings signifi cant downside risk in individual shares should economic data disappoint, whereas the valuation argument in favour of defensive sectors continues to look convincing in our view. And mine...FWIW...
